Building and Using the EZ Planing Sled

Furnished content.
(from Popularwoodworking.com)


As I mentioned last week, a common way to flatten a board that is too wide for your jointer is to build a planing sled and then pass the board & sled through the planer. Via incremental milling, the …Source

Two swap vessels

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Two swap vesselsA few days ago I was looking thru my stash of swap items form fellow LJ'ers and was struck (again) with the crotch vessel. Looking further I found the little bowl in the third picture and discovered it was from the same person, Don Schneider (porchfish) and I decided to call him and offer thanks for his inspiration.
If you look at the third picture there is a red line running vertically and a darker line running horizontally – both are resin. After looking closer and realizing that if he could put resin in a bowl then so could I and I did. You all know where that went – if you don't know, look thru my projects page.NOWIt's with a sad heart that I post pictures of these two bowls. Both vessels were at the hand of a very talented turner and teacher named Don Schneider of Havana Florida aka Porchfish. In my quest to find his number and talk to Don I was informed he passed away last July 16. His wife Mary told me that had been ill for some time and in May he was told he had but weeks to live.
I'm not only sad of his passing but more so that I didn't take the time to give credit where credit is due before it was too late.
So guy's if there's something that needs to be said, say it before the opportunity dissapearsRIP Don

Maple vase (bowl 27)

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Maple vase (bowl 27)Turned from bigleaf maple. This one fought me quite a bit: when drilling out the center with a spade bit on my lathe, it got pulled off-center partway down; when smoothing the outside with the skew, I kept getting catches, and even when I didn't, I wasn't getting the smooth finish I should; and finally, I cut off the tenon from the bottom before finishing the inside of the vase, so now I'm going to have to slowly finish it by hand.Ah well. The next one, from the other half of the 6×6x3 blank I started with, is going much more smoothly. I guess I just needed to get this one out of my system.

I had a project on which I needed to rout out a large area about 38” deep. It was a wooden case for a Nook reader, and the eReader had to fit into the excavation. I had …Source
